Excellent Attorney
I was rear-ended last year. It was the first time I had been in a serious accident. I was in total shock. I didn't know what to do or who to call. I spoke with several law offices before calling Baumgartner Law Firm. Mr Baumgartner and Lissa took the time to answer all my questions. They kept me informed about every decision and educated me throughout this process. I strongly recommend Baumgartner Law Firm

Great Attorney that I would highly recommend!
I was looking for an attorney to represent my case. I knew I wanted one that was experienced, honest, upfront, but most of all trustworthy. When I first met Greg and Lisa I was very impressed by their professionalism. I had questions about the auto accident I was involved in with a semi tractor/trailer and they really took the time to explain the answers to all of my concerns to ensure my well-being. I was not only happy with the outcome but with the whole process as well. If you're looking for a top class attorney, Greg is someone I would highly recommend.

Great Customer Service and Personal Attention
My aunt and uncle were rear ended in the HWY while visiting is us in TX, their vehicle flipped over several times and medical bill exceeded over $200K. Since the insurance only covered up to $100K, they were left with a big debt, and collections calling every day. After calling several lawyers, Mr. Baumgartner was the only one that would help us even when it seemed like a losing battle. He was able to get medical bills reduced and even get them some money. Most recently I called Mr. Baumgartner about a non-injury related matter; he went out of his way to help me resolve the issue. Mr. Baumgartner, thank you for the great customer service you have provided my family and me we are very satisfied by the communication and personal attention you provided us.

Very highly recommended
I was injured in an auto accident, and Mr. Baumgartner stepped between the insurance company and me and negotiated a fair settlement. Without reservations I highly recommend him.

Money lawyer that cherry pick cases.
I run to him for my 1st rear-ended clear liability accident case. He wouldn't take my case because, other side has small insurance policy.(he said it flat out to us) I give him 2nd chance professionally again for my 2nd rear-ended truck accident with Million policy he wouldn't take it because, I had no police report and 1st injury complicating 2nd accident claim for clear win (those are his words). Don't get me wrong. He is super lawyer and he known the law. He just love easy case that he only sure he will win big. They said, you only know your friends when you are down. Take this advise from seriously hurts people, whom know good and bad lawyers in Houston or take your chances.(Oh he take your perfect case, so would all attorney in Houston)

Response from Gregory Baumgartner July 24, 2015
I hope you found a good attorney and am sorry we were unable to handle your claims. We limit the cases we accept to insure the highest quality representation for our clients. I am extremely proud of the results we obtain on the cases we do except. I would encourage anyone looking for a lawyer to look at reviews by those folks the attorney has actually represented in a case as a gauge of the lawyers ability and if they may be a good attorney for your case.
